Short take: House votes to increase H-1B visa fees

The House Friday voted to increase the fees employers pay for each H-1B high-tech visa to $1,000 in a measure sponsored by Rules Committee chairman David Dreier, R-Calif. The voice vote was without dissent, although it's unclear if the Senate will take similar action before Congress adjourns for the year next week. The Senate on Tuesday approved an increase in H-1B visas but left to the House any effort to increase the fees employees pay.
